Duke senior Janie Booth is this year’s Student Preacher.  An art history major from Charlotte, she will deliver her sermon during Duke Chapel’s Sunday morning service on Sunday, February 17. Her sermon is based on a section of the sixth chapter of the Gospel of Luke, which describes Jesus coming down from a mountain to proclaim a series of blessings and woes.

“Jesus gives us instructions that turn our lives upside down,” Booth said about the sayings of Jesus that include “Blessed are you who are poor, for yours is the kingdom of God” and “Woe to you who are rich, for you have received your consolation.”
